Resting In The Blues (Robert Johnson)

Listening to an old original recording of this old blues song..... made me cut up some strips of different blue fabrics and variegated yarns, grabbed embroidery thread and glass beads.  I remember lying on the blue shaded grass, with eyes nearly closed, watching the white clouds race across the blue sky over the spinning earth.  And under me the immense weight and layers and size of the world.  If I kept lying there awake-asleep, it felt like flying and merging with the universe.  And then Nothing....and Everything.  Just resting in the grass.

"Resting In The Blues" is hand pieced, appliqued, embroidered, and beaded.
